OMA3 Announces Project to Build Standards for Traveling Through the Metaverse
Zug, Switzerland – In a groundbreaking move, the Open Metaverse Alliance for Web3 (OMA3) has announced its latest project: the Inter-World Portaling System (IWPS). This ambitious endeavor aims to create standards that will allow people to travel seamlessly through different metaverse platforms. OMA3, a consortium of top metaverse companies in Web3, is dedicated to building infrastructure and standards for a user-owned and user-controlled metaverse.
The industrial revolution was fueled by advancements in transportation technology such as railroads and highways. These critical conduits connected commercial hubs and facilitated the free flow of goods, services, and people. Similarly, the introduction of HTTP standard in the digital realm broke down information silos and enabled seamless transfer of knowledge across the globe. Now, IWPS promises to be the next pivotal development in this lineage of transformative technologies.
IWPS acts as a means of “transportation” within the digital realm by bridging disparate metaverse environments. Just like how physical transportation networks increased productivity during the industrial revolution or how HTTP linked digital repositories worldwide, IWPS enhances accessibility and engagement within various metaverse platforms.
OMA3 believes that IWPS has the potential to unlock new levels of connectivity, commerce, and shared experiences within the digital realm. To kickstart this project, OMA3 has released a position paper detailing the importance of IWPS along with use cases and development frameworks. The paper can be found on OMA3’s Github repository.
This ambitious undertaking requires collaboration from the entire Web3 metaverse community. OMA3 welcomes comments and contributions on their Github page. Organizations interested in participating in the standard’s development are encouraged to join OMA3.
